Focus On Listening

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” – Stephen R. Covey

This holiday season, you will be talking to a lot of people. You will be meeting and greeting in both your business and personal life.

Remember these quotes. The first one I read about in a novel. It was mentioned as a saying on the wall of the head of the Secret Service back in the 1960s.

I offer it today for you to keep in mind as you deal with clients, family, and your team:

“You ain’t learning nothing when you’re talking.”

I’m unsure if it is grammatically correct, but I think you get the message.

Here’s the other one from Agatha Christie in one of her novels:

“Speech is the deadliest of revealers.”

  • "Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about themselves, and small people talk about others."
  • John C. Maxwell
